No Gum Tattoos
With ceramic implants there will never be grey or silver showing through. Ceramic never no discolors or tattoos surrounding soft tissue. Nothing beats ceramic implants for tooth replacement.
Hands-down, when it comes to looking just like your own, natural, teeth nothing compares like an all ceramic implant. As a patient, it’s up to you when it comes to replacing a tooth. From prostheses and bridges to permanent dental implants, options abound. For most patients and doctors, implants top the list. In addition to their functional benefits, implants are also practical, durable, and much more pleasing aesthetically.
At our office with Dr Marilyn K Jones DDS, we prefer ceramic implants. Using ceramic is outpacing other options for tooth replacement at an exponential rate.
Ceramic Implants are Strong
The material in theses permanent dental implant [zirconia], a ceramic that is extruded from Zirconium, is biologically inert in the human body. Zirconia also has a high tensile strength (meaning it is very strong). What really makes the difference for many patients is the aesthetics. Ceramic/zirconia implants are considered the most realistic looking tooth replacement option available on the market. Face it, we all want our teeth to look good. Healthy gums with no silver tattoos look healthiest.
- There is no denture to mess with, no embarrassing creams or gels.
- No speech issues associated with tooth loss and tooth replacement, often associated with dentures or other prostheses.
- There are no restrictions on diet and eating habits.
- No risk of losing the implant or damaging it while eating.
- Having a ceramic dental implant also reduces the chance of bone loss in the jaw.
- Bone loss results lead to a number of additional dental issues and a diminished jaw-line.
No Negative Side Effects
Metal posted implants–made from titanium, stainless steel or other alloys–for permanent implants can still be performed. In addition to potential health concerns, metal posted implants have aesthetic drawbacks. The metal material traditionally used in implants (for decades), is still available but leaves a silver-grey color along the gum line. The discoloration makes it obvious that your tooth has been replaced.
White implants made from zirconia don’t have that issue. Not only are they the same color as your teeth, they actually promote soft tissue growth This means any chance of receding gums are reduced, as well. With metal implants, the gums can’t grow properly, leading to a distinguishable line at base of the new tooth. Even if you experience slight gum loss with ceramic implants, there’ll never be a dark metallic line at the gum line.
- Zirconia, ceramic implants are virtually indistinguishable from real teeth,
- They do not absorb stains from food
- Implants will not discolor over time
- Ceramic implants can last a lifetime
- They retain their shape and color for the duration
- They can be used for one tooth replacement
- An implant can replace multiple teeth few
- Implants can also anchor prosthetics like denture in the jaw
- They are bio-inert
- Implants will not absorb odor,
- Zerconia/ceramic implants also resist plaque
- Dental implants, made from ceramic, are also as easy to maintain as real teeth
Ceramic Implants Last a Lifetime
Implants are permanent: make sure you find a skilled, experienced doctor to place one.
